High school as a normal teen was hard enough. I can't imagine how sleep-deprived I would have been if I had to catch pixies or round up goat's blood on top of regular chores and homework. Cam's commentary on her dilemma and the ways she tries to thwart the witch's schemes are very funny, as are some of the results of her attempts. (I now know that if you are going to stick a phoenix feather in your back pocket to make sure the cute boy at the bus stop doesn't see it, you should make sure it is no longer on fire first.) Cam's character is feisty, frazzled, and understandably snarky at times. I really enjoyed her friend Jenah, her math tutor Kelvin reminds me of Dwight from the Origami Yoda books, and the boy at the bus stop is rather adorable. Altogether a fresh take on YA urban fantasy and highly recommended.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
